A sealed bid of £60,000 received by Liberata Property Services for a vacant shop in Scotland Road, Nelson, has been reduced, Pendle Council’s Executive was told.

Members had been recommended to accept the offer for the three-storey property, which was last used as an estate agency and has been empty since April, after they had declared it surplus to the council’s requirements at a meeting in October and agreed to be it being marketed for sale.

But the news the bid has been reduced means the tendering process will have to be restarted and a new buyer found.
